XTen 6.1: A Powerful, High-Performance X Window Server for Mac OS

Supports encrypted passwords for LAN security, multiple
password-protected desktops, centralized administration, and OpenGL

Santa Barbara, CA, May 21, 1999. Tenon Intersystems today announced
an upgrade to its unique X Window server for Power Macintosh. The new
X server is the fastest X server on the Macintosh market and the only
X server that supports local X Window managers and local X clients.
Tenon's X is running in their highly-acclaimed Mach/BSD execution
environment, providing the same multi-threaded architecture that is
now being touted by Apple in their newly released Mac OS X Server.
This foundation allows true X server operation and yields true X
server performance, all in an easy-to-use Macintosh application
package. The X server runs alongside Macintosh applications, giving
the user two desktops: the traditional Finder desktop and a standard
X Window desktop.

XTen is a flexible Macintosh application that can be tailored to suit
individual environments. The default AfterStep Window Manager gives a
NeXT-like appearance. Alternate desktops include an OpenLook Virtual
Window desktop or a Motif-like Lesstif desktop. All are easily
configured via a browser-based point and click interface. A systems
administrator can use this point and click interface to centrally
configure a site's XTen platforms. Included with XTen are over 100
client applications. New features of XTen 6.1 include a native fast
file system for top performance; improved XDM session control; secure
shell remote client launch; multiple password-based user desktops;
hot-key 'xterm' launch; integrated CDE fonts; and support for shared
memory extensions. In addition XTen supports ICCCM 2.0 scalable
fonts, font compilers, and X image extension (XIE). XTen not only
supports the X display Management Control Protocol (XDMCP), but XTen
can be configured as an XDM manager. Further it can be configured as
a font server or set up to use a remote font server. For added
compatibility, XTen now uses Open Transport as a default, but Tenon's
high-performance, multi-link TCP protocol stack is included as an
option.

XTen is $175 for a single copy. Upgrades from XTen 6.0 are $99. Site
licenses are available, with special sidegrade pricing for eXodus
sites. An OpenGL option is available for $99, with site licensing
available as well. XTen 6.1 with a built-in 14-day license can be
downloaded from the Tenon web site for testing.
